Margaret Atwood - Dorsett Fellowship Lecture :: Dartmouth College

M Atwood

Join us at Dartmouth to hear literary titan Margaret Atwood give the Dorsett Fellowship Lecture.

“Every totalitarian government on the planet has always taken a very great interest in women’s reproductive rights,” says Margaret Atwood; a disquieting insight at any time, but particularly in today’s portentous political landscape. Just as it did when it was published, the story of The Handmaid’s Tale—a future where women’s reproductive rights are governed by a conservative (and patriarchal) administration—is unearthing chilling patterns to an uneasy public.

Atwood’s work has been published in more than 40 languages, including Farsi, Japanese, Turkish, Finnish, Korean, Icelandic and Estonian. In 2004, she co-invented the LongPen, a remote signing device that allows someone to write in ink anywhere in the world via tablet PC and the internet. She is a founder of ther Writers’ Trust of Canada and a founding trustee of the Griffin Poetry Prize. She is also a popular personality on Twitter, with over a million followers.

“With dry, ironic wit, a poetic sensibility and more than a hint of the Gothic, she has uncompromisingly observed the psychology of people in her society.”— The New York Times

The author is on a tight schedule, and will not be signing books.

Sponsored by the Ethics Institute.

This event is free and open to the public.
